Messrs. T. Nelson and Sons send us some volumes which
should please young readers of various ages. First we should put A Brave Child : a Child's Life of Joan of Arc, by Annie Matheson (3s. 61) Miss Matheson has taken great pains to give her readers the right thing; they are as much entitled to it as the " grown- ups." Little Snowdrop (1s. 6d.) contains adaptations from Grimm; and then for a still younger class we have Very Short Poems for Very Short People and Very Short Stories for Very Short People (2s. each), among the latter being "The Little Tin Soldier," "Cinderella," "Puss in Boots," and other personages with whom the child cannot make acquaintance too soon.
